So here you are Sven! I was trying to figure out what kind of bird you were in Happy Feet 2 ;-)

Great photo. There are Puffins close by here too (SE Ireland), but very difficult to get a picture like this. Great work. I'm visiting Iceland in a few months so hopefully I can get to replicate your work.

We saw these birds in Juneau , Alaska. Our tour guide told us that these birds are very playful and they keep the rest of the ocean life entertained. It was nice to see them in their original habitat.
